Alpha Lipoic Acid A powerful antioxidant that minimizes skin's surface imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores, while encouraging healthy cellular function and increasing radiance. Topical application as part of an anti-aging treatment or acne treatment is patented by Dr. Perricone.
DMAE DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) is a powerful anti-inflammatory substance that acts as a cell membrane stabilizer and is critical to the process in which muscles contract and tighten. Dr. Perricone's signature patented ingredient DMAE helps prevent and correct the loss of skin elasticity.
Retinol Retinol enhances skin radiance and treats conditions associated with chronological aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. It also is considered necessary for normal epidermal cell growth and differentiation, for regulating collagen synthesis, and beneficial for maintaining a more youthful skin complexion.
Dr. Perricone recommends applying this treatment in the evenings on cleansed and toned skin over the entire face and neck, avoiding the eye area. To ensure maximum refining and firming benefits, apply treatment up into the hairline and extend to the neck and behind the ears.
Note: This product contains Retinol which can increase photosensitivity. Dr. Perricone recommends protecting your skin with a physical SPF the day after using evening treatment products containing Retinol. For SPF protection, try Photo Plasma with SPF 30 or No Foundation Foundation SPF 30

Comments about Perricone MD High Potency Evening Repair:
I spent and ungodly amount of money on the Pore Prescription Set, along with Cold Plasma and the Advanced Evening Repair in an insecure and deperate moment. I started using all of the products at the same time. I use the entire Pore Prescription Set in the AM, applying Cold Plasma after the toner and before the pore treatment. In PM I use this cleanser, the toner, Cold Plasma, then Advanced Evening Repair. I don't know which of these products is doing the heavy lifting, or if they all just work brilliantly together, but after 3 weeks of following this regimen, my skin has NEVER looked better!
From the time I turned 19 until today (I'm 35) I have had uneven, splotchy skin. I have struggled with cyctic hormonal breakouts, stress breakouts, enlarged pores, and blackheads on my nose and cheeks. Not only do I always have at least two huge pimples to cover up at any given time, usually more, but now I'm getting wrinkles on my forhead and around my nose. My skin can go from oily in the summer to extrememly dry in the winter. And the last couple of months it got even worse. Not only did I have the usual cyctic acne, but my forehead and both jaws become covered with tiny red pimples. And absolutely nothing I tried would make them disapear. Three weeks ago when I started this regimen, my skin had never looked worse.
I have spent thousands of dollars over the years trying to find something that will give me the clear, even toned skin of my dreams. I have tried drugstore brands like Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, Proactive, and Roc. More expensive brands like B. Kamins, Dr. Hauschka, Murad, DDF, Skinscuenticals, La Roche Posey, Avene, Erno Lazlo, Somme, Dermalogica, Skin Medica, Bliss, Kiehls, Dr. Brandt, and countless others. I've also been to several dermatologists and doctors for microdermabrasion, peels, facial, prescription Glycolic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, and Retinol, antibiotics and birth control pills. So I was more than a little nervous that this system wasn't going to work because I didn't start seeing results within the first week. I know, I'm an impatient person, but all of these products were ridiculously expensive and I was scared I had once again wasted my money. In fact, for the first couple of weeks my skin became even more oily. By week two though, all of my cyctic pimples deep down in my skin were gone. I could feel new ones come up under the skin, but they would shrink and disappear within a couple of days and never broke the surface or became visible enough to need to cover with makeup. Also in week two, the breakout of tiny red pimples all over my forehead and jaw that had been there for two months started to disapear. I looked in the mirror when I woke up this morning and I am AMAZED! It's week three and I am so happy to say I do not have ONE pimple anywear on my face, the pores on my nose and cheeks are smaller and completely clear of blackheads, the fine lines on my forhead are less visible, and my skin is more even toned than it has ever been been. I am so excited. I can't stop looking at myself in the mirror!
I don't know if these products or this specific regimen will work for everyone, and I know they are really expensive, but this has worked for me when nothing else has. I will spend less on clothes, bags, eating out, travel...anything, to be able to afford to keep using these products. I have wished for nice skin for 16 years and now I have it. When I looked in the mirror this morning, I finally felt beautiful. That's worth it to me.
